Coe D*TEC’s Scanning and Optimization technology comes with 25 years of proven industry leadership. The D*TEC family of products for the lumber segment of the forest products industry includes log, cant and board optimizers. For the plywood industry, both veneer and panel scanning are included. Our system architecture utilizes advanced modular technology. This design approach allows for easy upgrades of existing D*TEC equipment. Technological obsolescence need not be a concern.

Coe Platen CleanerAnother key benefit of a Coe D*TEC system is D*TEC 2000 Windows® which allows the operator to view real time operational data about each piece. These views include 3D perspective and detailed information displays. Man-machine Interface provides for intuitive graphical interface to allow for quick monitoring access and control adjustment of the mechanical line. Data can now be remotely accessed utilizing Windows® based network connections.

Whether your requirements are for Sawmill, Planer Mill or Plywood Machinery, Scanning and Control Systems, the engineering staff of Coe D*TEC is ready to design the perfect system to help you maximize your profits while minimizing your costs without sacrificing product quality.
